General Dentistry in Epping

dentist and patient talkingOne of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy and clean is to maintain regular dental checkups. At Epping Family Dental, we’re proud to offer everything you need for the long-term health of your smile under one roof.

Our passionate team of knowledgeable dentists and dental professionals will be here for you every step of the way as your partner in oral health, addressing any question or concern that arises during your time with us.

Routine Care

Prevention is better than cure, so we recommend patients visit us every six months for a routine checkup and clean. Not only does this keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible, it also allows us to catch most problems in the early stages, while they’re still easy to correct.

A checkup and clean involves charting your teeth and gums to monitor any issues like recession, cavities, oral trauma, and anything out of the ordinary. We’ll then take X-rays to get a deeper look at your teeth. Should we see any issues, we’ll let you know straightaway.

If everything looks good, we’ll move on to the cleaning. A dental clean involves removing plaque and tartar, and cleaning those hard-to-reach places that are difficult to access with a toothbrush. We’ll end the cleaning with a fluoride treatment to help keep your teeth healthy and strong.

It’s important to start dental care early, and we offer focused cleans for children of all ages‑—from infants to teens and everyone in between—to help establish good oral health habits for life.

Have a Cavity? We’ve Got You Covered

Another aspect of general dentistry is identifying and filling cavities. While some cavities are apparent during your routine appointment, others may pop up between your regular visits—in which case, we’re happy to see you as quickly as possible for a filling.

We use white fillings made of advanced materials and match the colour of your natural teeth. These state-of-the-art fillings are designed to be long-lasting and more stable than traditional metal fillings.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I book a checkup?

Patients typically visit us every six months for the best long-term oral health success. However, we pride ourselves on being open and honest with patients, and we’ll let you know our individualised recommendations for you. Sometimes, visiting us every three months is necessary to get a condition under control, while in other cases, one visit a year is sufficient.

How long does a checkup and clean take?

You can expect to be in our practice for roughly one hour from start to finish. This allows us enough time to properly examine your teeth and gums and provide you with the excellent care you deserve, as well as answer any of your questions.

Will my health fund cover the visit?

Yes! Typically, health funds cover general checkups and cleans every six months. We can give you more specifics about your particular fund when you call us to book a visit.
